ORGANIZED APRIL 12th, 1883. 
INCORPORATED JUNE 12th. 1885. 



The Society having no Endowment fund, it was resolved at a Meeting of 
the Executive Committee to call the attention to this want, as amount of 
money from dues received is only sufficient for the rent and salaries and leaves 
no margin over for the erection of Monuments, placing of Tablets, Publica- 
tions, or general outside work of the Society. It is earnestly hoped that mem- 
bers should incorporate in their Wills the following Form of Bequest. 

William Jay, President. 

T. J. Oakley Rhinelander, Treas. 

Mrs. JAMES S. LawtON, Secretary. 



FORM OF BEQUEST. 

I hereby give and bequeath to "THE HUGUENOT SOCIETY OF 

AMERICA" the sum of Dollars, for the use or 

said Society as an endowment fund, only the interest of which fund is to be 
used for the benefit of the said Society.

Report of the Monument Committee. 

The Chairman of the Monument Committee has the honor to report 
that it has been decided not to attempt placing a monument on the spot 
first designated. Two members of the Committee sent at their own ex- 
pense Mr. Hrdlicka of the Smithsonian Institute to excavate and exa- 
mine closely all skeletons found there. He reported that these were In- 
dian skeletons. It was proposed to the Committee that, as there is ab- 
solutely no doubt as to the spot where Fort Caroline stood, that the 
Society could safely place a monument there. During the coming summer 



12 



experts and engineers will examine carefully to find the remains of 
the breast works of the old Fort. The matter of erecting a monument 
was at the last Annual Meeting left to the option of the Committee. 
With the sanction of the Executive Committee, the Society will then be 
called upon for contributions. 

Respectfully submitted. 

Mrs. James M. Lawton, Chairman. 

Report of the House Committee 

During the winter, four TEAS were held at the rooms of the Hugue- 
not Society of America. The first three Teas owing to their being held 
at a very gay season were not as well attended as we might wish, but 
were very enjoyable. At the fourth, the room was well filled by both 
members and their friends and we trust that much more interest will be 
shown next year. 

Mrs. E. L. De P. Clarkson, Chairman. 
These Reports were accepted and ordered placed on the Minutes. 

Other Business. 

On recommendation of the Executive Committee and on motion of 
Mr. Banta, seconded by Mr. Alden Freeman, Mr. Stanley Weyman was 
elected as Honorary Member of the Huguenot Society of America. 

Election of the Officers now in order. The ballot approved by the 
Executive Committee was submitted and, on motion of Mr. Marschalk, 
the Secretary was requested to cast the ballot, She declined as she was 
one of the Officers to be balloted for. On motion, Mr. William Mitchell 
cast one ballot and the Officers on same were declared unanimously 
elected.

With the authorization of Mr. A. Or. Browning, Mrs. Lawton read 
extracts from a paper written by Mr. A. G-. Browning and entitled: "A 
Peaceful Invasion of England by the Huguenots in 1675." As this Vol- 
ume is in the Library, it was not deemed necessary to have the extracts 
printed. 



The Speakers at the Banquet of the Society, given at Delmonico's on April 15th, 1907, were: 

1st. Hon. Seth Low, who delivered a most able address on " Our City and the Huguenot 
Founders." 

2nd. Hon. John Van Wormer: "Union of the Dutch and French." 

3rd. Rev Donald S. MacKey, whose historical and interesting dissertation on the "Hugue- 
not and the Covenanter," met with great applause. 

4th. Col. Howland Pell, who was most happy in his reply to the Toast of "Our Guests." 

The Choir boys of Grace Church, under the direction of Mr. Helfeinstein, volunteered 
their services on the occasion, and gave most delightful music. 

The Guests were the Presidents of the Societies antedating the Huguenot Society. 

The following Poem was read by the author: Rev. Edward O. Flagg, member of the Society: 




My song — the Huguenot! 

A soul of souls was he, 
Opposed to every plot 

At war with Libertv. 



Each iron code relaxed, 
Self-government the rule, 

Far less man's earnings taxed, 
The Bible in the school. 



His courage never failed, Within our nation's heart 

'Gainst sword and flame 'twas steeled, Lies deep enfolded he 



In conscience armor mailed 

He caused their threats to yield. 

An exile from his home, 
Through persecution's rod, 

Whene'er compelled to roam, 
He ne'er forsook his God. 

Wherever he was driven 

More sweet the flowers bloomed, 
The gentle dew of Heaven 

The dreariest waste illumed. 

Behold fresh enterprise, 

The golden harvest hour, 
Toil cheered by fairer skies, 
A simpler life, more power. 



Who caused such fruits to start 
On land and on the sea. 

Hence ne'er should be forgot 
But often brought to view 

The sturdy Huguenot, 
To home and altar true. 

And let "noblesse oblige" 

Each thought and action sway 

Whose vantage ground no siege 
Could ever drive away. 

Exotics widely grow 
Our union to enhance. 

Most graceful 'mid the glow 
The fleur-de-lis of France.

Meeting of the Monument Committee, May iyth, 1907. 

A Meeting of the Monument Committee was held after the Meeting 
of the Stewards on May 17. T907. Letters from Dr. Webb to Mr. Merrill, 
Secretary of the Committee, and from Mr. Rieman Duval were read. 
The investigations were not satisfactory in regard to the site of the 
Massacre at Matanzas Inlet. General Brooke who spends his winters at 
St. Augustine, Fla. thinks there is no doubt that the Huguenots landed 
on the Southern end of Anastasia Island. He mentioned an Army En- 
gineer Officer, Mr. Lewis R. Mc Lean of St. Augustine, who would doubt- 
less accompany whoever goes from here to Fort Caroline, and examine 
also the Southern part of Anastasia Island. After much discussion, it 
was thought best that Fort Caroline be marked with a tablet, and that 
the Monument be erected on the site of the Massacre at Matanzas Inlet. 
Resolved that no action be taken until careful personal investigation be 
made on the spot by the Chairman and some other Member of the Com- 
mittee to share the responsibility with her. 

Executive Committee Meeting May 17th, ipoj. 

The Treasurer reported that in Accordance with instructions given

to ratification at the next Meeting.

STANDING ". The motion was made, duly seconded and passed. 

Mr. Rhinelander, Chairman of the Stewards, reported that for the 
first time in the Annals of the Banquets, no money had been asked from 
the Society, and that $16 had been returned by the Treasurer of the 
Stewards. This was owing to money received from proceeds of Lec- 
tures.

was accepted with thanks.

Report of the Monument Committee 



Owing' to the very depressed and depressing state of the Market, it 
was considered unadvisable to formulate any plans or to ask for any do- 
nations towards the Fund. 

It has however been nearly decided by your Commitee to have the 
Monument erected on the site of Fort Caroline at the mouth of the St. 
John's River, instead of on Matanzas Inlet. The site of the former seems 
to be well known, and is marked on all Maps. 

We had so many deaths during the past year that we need every dol- 
lar we can get. One Lady sent us unasked a donation of Sio towards our 
running expenses. It was most thankfully received. It would be most 
gratifying if others would follow her example. 



The Chairman of the House Committee begs to report that three teas 
were given during the winter at the Society's rooms. The January and 
February teas were not as well attended as could be wished, but the last 
was a great success and most enjoyable. It is hoped and expected that, as 
the teas become more generally known to the Society, the Members will 
take more interest in the social reunions. 



The election of Officers being in order, Messrs. John E. Merrill and 
De Luze were elected tellers. The Ballot recommended by the Exe- 
cutive Committee was unanimously approved.

enjoyed a most delightful tea given by the Executive Committee.

Executive Committee Meeting, May 15th, 1908. 

Treasurer's report accepted. He also presented the list of Members 
dropped for non-payment of dues since 1883 — 71 in number, a loss to the 
Society of §2, 270. 

Seven names presented. 

Mr. Cornelius B. Mitchell was elected Chairman of the Finance Com- 
mittee. 

Mrs. Lawton was elected Chairman of the Library and Pedigree Com- 
mittee, and Mr. Mirabel was elected Assistant Secretary to fill the Office 
created some years ago by the Society. 

Mr. Lester, Vice-President for New Rocheile, told the Committee of 
the very interesting work being done by the Huguenot Association of 
New Rocheile, and asked their co-operation towards the purchase of the 
house at New Rocheile which they have chosen for their headquarters 
and as a Museum for Huguenot relics. 

Executive Committee Meeting, November iot/1, 1908. 
Treasurer's report accepted. 

The Secretary reported the deaths of three Members: Mr. Lewis S. 
Dabney, Mrs. Henry C. Stimson and Mr. James D. Hague. 

Mr. Samuel R. Thayer represented the Society on the occasion of the 
receiving of the body of Governor Clinton, May 28th. 

The Society was not represented on the 250th anniversary celebra- 
tion at Kingston. 

Several Members of the Society were present at the unveiling of the 
Bronze Tablet presented to the City of New Rocheile by the Huguenot 
Association. Dr. Darlington who was to have been the Representative of 
the Society, missed his train and Dr. Flagg gave a most excellent address. 

ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE NEW YORK SOCIETY OF 
AMERICAN HUGUENOTS BY THE HUGUENOT 
SOCIETY OF NEW ROCHELLE. 

The members of the Huguenot Society of America received an invi- 
tation from the Huguenot Society of New Rocheile to visit their City. 
The object of such invitation was to attend the ceremony of unveiling 
a monument with the inscription of the names of those Huguenot refugees 
who were the earliest settlers of the above City giving it its name. The 
Mayor of New Rocheile unveiling the memorial delivered an appro- 
priate address. The Rev. Charles F. Canedy, D.D., presided, offered a 
prayer, made an address, and extended a cordial welcome to the invited 
guests. An historical paper was read by Thos. S. Drake, Esq. Dr. 
Darlington, President of the Board of Health, in New York, and the 
appointed representative of the New York delegation having missed his 
train, the Rev. Dr. Edward O. Flagg, a member of the Executive Com- 
mittee, was requested to take his place. 

Responding to this request the following sentiments were a portion 
of his remarks. He stated how pleased the authorities of our country 



2 3 

are to give the right hand of fellowship to the immigrants of every name 
and nation who with honorable intentions might seek a home within 
our free and vast domain. He spoke of the Huguenot Society as a silent 
protest against any infringement upon our constitutional rights either in 
Church or State. Defensively and not aggressively did he exalt Amer- 
ican citizenship defining its incomparable mission and its great respon- 
sibility. 

A very toothsome and ample repast was then appreciatingly enjoyed 
by keen appetites. 

Thanks were voted for the generous hospitality of the entertainers. 

The collation was supplemented by a delightful sail upon the Sound. 
After the conclusion of so unique a reception all retired to their respect- 
ive abodes. It is needless to assume that each felt still more proud of 
the Organization to which he or she belonged and perchance breathed a 
secret prayer, that our national motto, " He that brought us over will 
sustain us" might in its fullest sense be verified and justified. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Edward Octavus Flagg. 

This report was accepted. 

Mr. Mirabel has given a very interesting account of the proceedings 
which unfortunately space does not permit of copying. By request, the 
letter of the Secretary to Mr. Lester is appended : 

Mr. Hknry M. Lester 
President Huguenot Association of New RocJiellc 

Dear Mr. President: 

I wish to tender to you personally and to the other Members of your 
Association my hearty congratulations, as Secretary of the Huguenot 
Society of America, on the work you have brought through many difficulties 
to a triumphant finish. You have rescued from oblivion many names of 
those whose records do not appear on this World's Book of Fame, but 
who, losing their all for conscience sake, have their names inscribed 
above. You have thus contributed a most beautiful page to History, and 
this your Labor of Love, is all the more praiseworthy in as much as 
some of you are not of Huguenot descent. The Huguenot Society of 
America is glad to have contributed her quota of names to your Tablet, 
and is very proud of her Foster Daughter. Dr. Darlington whose ances- 
tor's name appears on the Roll of Honor is the official representative of 
the Society, and will address you on the occasion. 

Sincerely yours, 

E. M. C. A. Lawton 

Secretary Huguenot Society of America. 

At the unveiling of the Bowlder Monument by the Huguenot Patent- 
ee Historical and Memorial Society of New Paltz to the the twelve 
Patentees, on September 29th. Judge Clearwater represented our Socie- 
ty and made an address. 



24 



Kingston, N. Y., Oct. 19th, 1908 

My Dear Mrs. Lawton: 

In compliance with your request I enclose a concise report of the 
proceedings at the unveiling of the bowlder monument at New Paltz on 
the 29th ultimo. Profoundly to my regret we did not have the pleasure 
of your company. The occasion was a most interesting one, and the 
setting artistic and beautiful. In fact the whole scene filled the eye and 
satisfied the mind. 

With many kind regards, I am as ever, 

Very sincerely yours, 

A. T. Clearwater. 

Tuesday the 29th of September was a red letter day in the old Hu- 
guenot Village of New Paltz for it was the occasion when the bowlder 
monument erected by the Huguenot Patriotic Historical and Memorial 
Society of New Paltz to the twelve patentees to whom Governor Ed- 
mond Andros granted the Paltz Patent on the 29th day of September, 
1677, was unveiled. The monument consists of two bowlders of 
Shawangunk Mountain Grit one of which is the base, the other the shaft. 
It is placed in the triangular space directly in front of the Memorial 
House. The ceremonies took place on the lawn of Abram Deyo Broad- 
head immediately opposite. The countryside for miles around gathered 
at New Paltz, and the day was faultless. Seats were arranged in the 
form of an amphitheatre and Mr. Broadhead's porte-cochere was used as 
a platform for the speakers who were Ralph LeFevre, President of the 
New Paltz Society, Judge Frank Hasbrouck, of Poughkeepsie, formerly 
President of the Holland Society and Judge A. T. Clearwater of Kings- 
ton, one of the Vice-Presidents of the Huguenot Society of America and 
a member of the Board of Trustees of the Huguenot Society of New 
Paltz and a life member of the Board of Trustees of the Huguenot So- 
ciety of South Carolina. A notable coincidence was the fact that Mr. 
Broadhead's house was built in the year 1680 by Christian Deyo and 
Pierre Deyo, Huguenot ancestors of Judge Clearwater who delivered the 
address. Let into the shaft of the monument is a bronze tablet cast by 
the Gorham Company which contains the following inscription: — 

TO THE 

Memory and in honor of 

Louis DeBois • 
Christian Deyo 
Abraham Hasbrouck 
Andre LeFevre 
Jean Hasbrouck 
Pierre Deyo 
Louis Bevier 
Antoine Crespel

The New Paltz patentees,, who, driven by religious persecu- 
tion from their native France, exiles for conscience's sake, 
came to America, after a sojourn in the Rhine Palatinate, 
near Manheim, here established their homes on the banks of 
the Wallkill, settled the country purchased from the Indians 
and granted by patent issued by Governor Edmond Andros on 
the 29th day of September, 1677, and nobly bore their part 
in the creation of our free government. 

The Huguenot, Patriotic, Historical and Monumental As- 
sociation of New Paltz erects this monument, the 29th day 
of September, 1908. 

During the summer, Mr. Mirabel made a list of all Huguenots known 
to have settled in New Rochelle— this appears on the Tablet in addition 
to the names found by the Huguenot Association. — He has supplement- 
ed this li^t for the Library, giving their homes in France, where they 
landed, where they settled, with dates and authorities. — He has com- 
pleted, as far as the Records go, the Genealogies of the Guion and Char- 
davoyne families. 

A Lady from North Carolina brought to the Library a Silver cup now 
in possession of Mr. J. H. Guion, a descendant of Isaac Guion, and 
kindly allowtd Mr. Mirabel to copy all the names engraved on it. 

The Minutes of the several Committees from 19c 6 to Nov. 1908 are 
ready for the printer and also the Family names of Huguenot Refugees 
to America, represented in the Membership of the Society. (This list is 
the old one compiled by Mrs. Lawton, revised and added to.) 

Six of the Candidates presented in May were declared elected by the 
Secretarv, suject to ratification at this Meeting. The Committee rati- 
fied their election. Six names were presented and by order of the Pre- 
sident, the first reading was dispensed with, the Chairman of the Pedi- 
gree Committee having been authorized to examine and correct them for 
action at this Meeting. Having been pronounced correct, these candidates 
were declared duly elected. Four supplemental claims were presented, 
three of which were accepted. The fourth not yet verified as Huguenot. 
One new name was presented. 

The new Circular of Information and new List of Members were 
printed during the Summer. 

Mr. C. B. Mitchell is to represent the Society at the Colonial Wars' 
Banquet and at that of the St. Nicholas. 

The Treasurer read a statement showing the probable deficit at the 
end of the fiscal year. Resolved "that a Special Meeting be called to

Committee. Mrs. Lawton to write to his brother. The Secretary also 
reported that a Lady, who resigned in 1904, on account of the death of

correct by the Pedigree Committee, the Candidates were declared duly 
elected.

Committee, it will be impossible, owing to the present finances of the 
Society, to aid them in their work.

cretary a Banquet Committee; the Treasurer, Chairman of the Stewards,

Reports from Foreign Societies, 

The Secretary gave the names of the Huguenot Societies with their 
dates. 

x. Societe de l'Histoire du Protestantisme Franeais, founded in 
1853. 

2. Huguenot Society of America, founded April 13th 1883. 

3. Huguenot Society of South Carolina, originally intended as a 

Branch Society under the presidency of the Vice-President of 
the Huguenot Society of America, for South Carolina, but in- 
corporated as a separate Society in 1885. 

4. Huguenot Society of London, founded in 1885. 

5. Commission de l'Histoire et de la Bibliotheque Wallonnes, found- 

ed in 1883. 

6. Societe de l'Histoire Vaudoise, founded in 1884. 

7. Huguenot Society of Germany, founded in 1887. 

8. Societe du Protestantisme Beige, founded in 1904. 

9. The Huguenot Association of New Rochelle, founded in 1885. 
10. New Paltz Huguenot Society. 

In answer to questions sent to the Sister Foreign Societies, Monsieur 
Weiss, Secretary of the Society of the History of French Protestan- 
tism, reports that their Library is continually increasing. He says that 
in his opinion there is on the Continent but one Huguenot Society which, 
like the London Society, has mapped out its work to search History and 
to rescue from oblivion all traces left by the Huguenot Refugees. —This 
is the German Society — President. Monsieur Charles Correvon. The 
Commission de l'Histoire et de la Bibliotheque Wallonnes, whose Presi- 
dent is Pastor E. Bourlier, may also lay claim to the title of Huguenot 
Society. 

The Societe d'Histoire Vaudoise collects everything concerning the 
history of those Vaudois, who were in reality French, but who are now 
half Italian. The President is Monsieur Paolo Longo. 

The last Society founded is La Societe d'Histoire du Protestantisme 
Beige. 

Mr. Giuseppi, Assistant Secretary of the London Society, says that 
their Society has had its three ordinary Meetings at which three papers 
have been read. The other part of the Society's work has been devoted 
to its publications. 

{Note by Mrs. Law ton. -These Publications are paid for by individual 
Members of the Council.) The Publications of 1908 were: 1. The Re- 
gisters of the French Church of Portarlington. Ireland, edited by Thomas 
Philip Le Fanu, and 2. Returns of Aliens Dwelling in the City and Sub- 
urbs of London, (Index) edited by R. E. G. Kirk and Ernest F. Kirk. 

Monsieur Charles Correvon, President of the German Huguenot So- 
ciety, expressed himself as very much touched by his election as Honor- 
ary Member of the American Society, and will do all in his power to 
merit the honor. He says that the German Society has not been very act- 
ive during late years, but hopes, after a reorganization, to be better able 
to maintain and develop its publications. 



3° 

Monsieur Paolo Longo, President of the Vaudois Society, says that 
he has been President of the Societe d'Histoire Vaudoise for nine years 
and that during that time they have been very actively engaged. 

Rev. Robert Wilson, President of the Huguenot Society of South 
Carolina says that they have over 300 members, not a third of whom are 
residents there, and the Society meets only on the Anniversary, all the 
work in the interval being done by the Executive Committee, which 
being interpreted means the President. 

Mr. Henry M. Lester, President of New Rochelle Huguenot Asso- 
ciation says that the early part of 1908 was taken up with gathering sta- 
tistics and historical matter connected w T ith securing the list of Hugue- 
not names which were incorporated on the bronze tablet that was erected 
on the Huguenot Monument at Hudson Park. 

Since that time, the Association has taken on considerable activity, 
the lines of work having been largely broadened out. The Association 
has acquired by contract a plot of ground on North Avenue upon which 
they have placed the old Huguenot house formerly occupied by the De 
Veaux Family and later by Thomas Paine, which they have had repaired 
for the purpose of having it made into a museum, using it as the head- 
quarters of the Association and fitting it up with the relics, furniture 
and other interesting things in connection with the history of the 
town. 

Mr. Ralph Le Fevre, President of New Paltz Historical Society, says 
that he can report considerable progress in one line and another during 
the past year. The museum of relics and antiques in their Huguenot 
Memorial House is slowly increasing. Their monument with tablet 
containing the names of the twelve Huguenot Patentees was unveiled 
Sept. 29. It is perhaps as fine a bowlder monument as there is in the 
Country. The Society has made some progress in the translation of old 
French documents, which have been saved in old collections at New 
Paltz.

MR. Steward, what bring you here ? 

STEWARD 

Two Loving Cups, prepared by the SECR TARY'S direction. 

PRESIDENT 
Madame Secretary, what do these Cups Contain ? 

SECRETARY 

The choicest WINE of France com mem crating our Huguenot Ancestors, 
Fortified with Spirit, the Spirit of admiration for their faith and courage, 
and Sweetened by Sympathy with the poor and aged among their Descend- 
ants. It is left, Sir, for you to add the CORDIAL, a cordial WELCOME, to the 
guests assembled at our tables. 

PRESIDENT 

Gentlemen and Ladies, I invite you to drink with us to "The Memory of 
our Huguenot Ancestors," and I offer you a warm welcome to this table from 
their descendants, members of the Huguenot Society of America. 

Hyn>r> 177 

O King of saints, we give Thee praise and glory 

For the bright cloud of witnesses unseen, 
Whose names shine forth like stars, in sacred story, 

Guiding our steps to realms of light serene. 

Thine arm sustained them all in conflict mortal 
With sin, the world, and all the powers of hell ; 

Thy hand hath oped for all, the shining portal 
To realms where peace and joy forever dwell.

After the Guests were seated, the Secretary rose. 

MR. PRESIDENT, I have just received a wireless saying that a very strange 
looking craft is fast approaching; our harbor. Frightened no doubt, by the 
sight of savages lining our shores, the crew will be afraid to land. Will you 
allow them to enter our harbor on the flood tide of loyalty and enthusiasm 
and cast anchor ? 

Presiding QfGcev 

If it be not the flag-ship of an invading force you may signal them to 
enter. 

Enter the "Halve Maan" borne by shrouded figures. 

SONG OF THE "HALF MOON'S SAILORS." 

By Rev. Melville K. Bailey 
Air: Dutch National A //them. 



Yo ho! Yo ho! the land appears, 
Now loose the straining sails. 
Now fade away our doubts and fears, 
As twilight gloaming fails. 
Our good ship o'er the ocean wide 
Has left her wake of foam, 
Now still at anchor let her ride, 
- Safe in her Western home, 
Safe in her Western home! 

We leave behind the Holly-Land 
That braves the wild North Sea, 
And that where Gallic chateaux stand 
On many a sunny lea; 
And Albion's silver cliffs we leave, 
wind-borne no more we roam; 
Nor for the ancient manors grieve, 
Safe in our Western home. 
Safe in our Western Home! 



Yet where fame's clarion trumpets blow, 

Shall Sound the honored names 

Of lofty-hearted Huguenot, 

Of mild-eyed Holland dames; 

And Hudson's name indelibly 

We'll write in script of foam 

On waters running to the sea 

By this our island home, 

By this our island home! 

And here a city shall arise 

Beside this queenly bay, 

And gaze with. proud, imperial eyes 

At Europe far away; 

Her heart the heart of all the lands 

whose restless millions roam. 

And to her service give their hands, 
Safe in their Western home. 
Safe in their Western home! 



Yo ho! yo ho! the land appears, 

The New World's voices call. 

Now fade away our doubts and fears, 

ARd let the anchor fall ! 

Our good ship o'er the ocean wide 

Has left her track of foam. 

Now in the harbor let her ride. 
By this proud island home, 
Bv this fair island home! 



What is this craft ? 



Presiding Officer 
Stew'ard 



MR. PRESIDENT, we are being hypnotized. This is no vessel. It is the 
"Wraith of the Half Moon" projecting her shadow through the vista of the 
ages. She comes to us some months in advance of her three-hundredth anni- 
versary, acknowledge the debt that ancient tradition declares she owes to 
Huguenots in England, in that they contributed so generously to that noble 
venture which was to reveal to Europe America's most beautiful river and 
queenly bay, on whose fair shores the name of many a Huguenot should be 
indelibly inscribed.

Report of the Chairman of the Hudson-Fulton Celebration. 

The Hudson-Fulton Commission having invited the Huguenot Society 
of America, in conjunction with certain other patriotic Societies of New 
York, to participate in the Historical Parade of September 28th, 1909, 
the Executive Committee accepted the invitation and appointed Mr. 
William Dalliba Dutton, Chairman of a Committee to be selected by 
him. MrD.itton named as his associates Messrs T . J.Oakley Rhinelander, 
Cornelius B. Mitchell, William Mitchell, Woolsey McA. Johnson, Henry 
M. Lester and Dr. Thomas Darlington. 

As the Hudson-Fulton Commission desired the Society to man and 
escort a float to represent some event of Huguenot history connected 
with the State of New York, the Committee suggested the episode of the 
transferring of titles of land at New Rochelle, to Huguenot settlers, by 
Governor Jacob Leisler, in 1690, and the idea was accepted and put into 
execution by the Commission. Invitations to act as members of a Guard 
of Honor to the float were sent out by the Committee to all the men 
members of the Society, followed by frequent notices describing the 
intended celebration and giving information relating to it. About thirty 
members responded affirmatively to the call. Through the efforts of Mr. 
Henry M. Lester, President of the Huguenot Association of New Ro- 
chelle, and also a Member of the Committee, fourteen ladies and gentle- 
men of tha: association volunteered toman the float, thus giving a pecu- 
liar appropriateness to the event depicted. The assistance of these mem- 
bers of the New Rochelle organization was gracefully tendered and 
most effectively rendered and was thoroughly appreciated by the Hu- 
guenot Society of America. 

The Colonial Wars of the State of New York very kindly placed at the 
disposal of our Members three hundred seats at cost price on their stand. 

All the arrangements were successfully carried out. On the morning 
of September 2Sth, those gentlemen who were to act as the Guard of 
Honor met at the library of the Society where they were most agreeably 
surprised to seethe Secretary. Mrs. Lawton, who, before they began their 
march, served them with refreshments, sent through the generosity of 
Mr. Rhinelander. At the time arranged, the Guard of Honor repaired to 
110th, Street and Central Park West, from where the Parade was to start, 
and there took its proper position following the Huguenot Float. 
Throughout the long line of march much enthusiasm was shown by the 
public in frequent applause for the float, those who were upon it and 
for the Guard of Honor. 

Each participant in the Parade felt, later, a genuine satisfaction in 
having honored the Huguenots who, according to accepted tradition, 
accompanied Hudson on his voyage of discovery-one which added a new 
and glorious page to their history. 

Respectfully submitted 

William Dalliba DUTTON, 

Chairman.
